Community spirit

I WAS very happy to read in the Observer that Michelle Stocker of Newsmart in Western Road, Bexhill, had been named as Independent Magazine Retailer of the Year. Added to this well-deserved award, is the business's thoughtful community spirit. On the day that I walked down Western Road in the snow and ice of last winter, only one shopkeeper had de-iced and swept the pavement in front of their shop: Newsmart. That speaks volumes, doesn't it?
